Well this is a little teaser of things to come. I have been in preproduction with a fabulous friend who I met when I first moved to London. Fast forward eight years and Sophie Parker has her own business called Star Wigs (http://www.starwigs.co.uk). In the words of Sophie "Hair is the one thing that can change the way a woman feels about herself". I could not agree more. These wigs, called Stars, are guaranteed to make you feel fabulous and confident.
It had been a stressful and busy week. I was really looking forward to enjoying some sunshine on my day off, especially as it has been both sunny and warm for the long weekend. Summer was finally here! It comes as no surprise that when I woke up on Tuesday I was greeted by a typical grey rainy day. My plans of spending the day in glorious sunshine with my camera were shattered.
When in Rome do as the Romans do, right? I had a mini break in Cardiff, visiting my boyfriend who was acting in the opera Wagner Dream playing, Dr Keppler. It only seemed right that we should go and see the Doctor Who exhibit. I am honestly not the biggest fan but I do have memories staying up late watching the Tom Baker series with my mum in Australia. They must be doing something right if the show first aired in 1963 and still has a massive cult following. It is listed in the Guinness World Records as the longest-running science fiction television show in the world and as the "most successful" science fiction series of all time—based on its over-all broadcast ratings
So my flat mate and I have been working on a rather interesting little documentary. Now I have worked in the hospitality industry for many years but never came across anything so unique as this, especially in London town. Please let me introduced you to POGO, a vegan café which runs by a volunteer service. Now I know the thought of vegan food can make most people run the other way but hold on a second and hear me out. This establishment is based in Hackney and unlike most eateries has a massive community feel. I really think you need to try before you make up your mind. The lunch we had that day was amazing, using local fresh ingredients. The menu looks like any other cafe but offers some tasty meat free alternatives.
